Summer heat building next week!

Afternoon temperatures will climb into the mid 90s.

Get set for a heat wave to build throughout the Southeast next week, including Metro Atlanta!

High pressure will settle over the Mid-South, with sinking air compressing and heating up within the center of the high.

In the meantime, southwesterly winds will pull humid air from the Gulf of Mexico northward into Metro Atlanta this weekend, which will add to the stifling heat building next week.


Not much relief will be available overnight into the early morning hours, as high dewpoints prevent temperatures from dropping below the low 70s. Remember: The higher the dewpoint, the higher the humidity -- and higher humidity levels make for uncomfortable conditions outside.
